Re: Towing Air bags installed

I will deff post pics with them inflated and w/o them inflated once i get the trailer hooked up.

As far as the rust goes. You can scrape, and brush all you want and put as many coats of rustoleum over it as you want but it will still come back.

Rust is like cancer. The only want to get rid of it is to remove it completely. And these paints like Rustoleum and POR 15 and such that claim to transform rust and stop it is total Bull Shit.

Ive tried everything on rust and every time, like clock work after one winter it comes back.

The only real way to get rid of rust would be to sand blast it off or grind it off so the surface is bare metal, clean the hell out of it, heat it all up to make sure any moisture is off it, then paint it with good high quality paint. And welds and seams and corners and edges will always be the first to rust.

Like i said, if i cared enough and had the disposable $$ to do it i would buy another rear sub frame, sand blast it, and have it professionally painted and sealed.

All rubberized undercoating does is cover rust up and lock in the moisture in turn making more rust and paint with a wire brushing will only hide it until it comes back.

Re: Towing Air bags installed

Good to know bro...I figured with your off-roading background you know whats up! Thanks for the info and I look forward to the pics...so this will basically allow you to adj. ride height based on the load and give you improved stability?

Exactly. When a coil sprung vehicle hooks up to a trailer they tend to sag in the rear real bad and handling is reduced. But With these it will help beef up the rear end to handle the load and the road better. Combined with a Weight Distribution Hitch I can easily pull a 20ft long, 6000lb trailer.

All you have to do it adjust the air pressure according to the size of the load. This system is suggested to use between 5 and 35psi in it. I am keeping it at 10ps for now to try and reduce some of the bouncy ness the stock WK suspension has until i can afford the Bilstein shocks and struts.
